The Conservative Political Action Conference has endorsed Donald Trump for president.

"#CPAC endorses President Donald Trump for President of the United States. It's time to bring back our country and freedom," organizers for the event, sponsored by the American Conservative Union, wrote on the social media platform, X.

The endorsement comes shortly before the Iowa caucuses Monday. 

“Now is the time to unite and support the candidate who best can accomplish what is needed to put America back on track. CPAC enthusiastically endorses Donald J. Trump for president of the United States,” said CPAC Chairman Matt Schlapp, according to The Washington Examiner. 

Trump has also picked up key endorsements from House GOP leadership such as Speaker Mike Johnson, R-La. and Majority Whip Tom Emmer, R-Minn.

“The extreme leftist Marxists have infiltrated our colleges, universities, elementary schools, the military, in fact, all of our sacred institutions," Schlapp continued in his statement. 

"As conditions at the border, the economy, and culture dramatically worsen every day, one person has again clearly won the hearts and minds of conservatives for his tireless commitment to make America great again."
